His mission is to create art that provides emotional experiences with a focus on the ties that people have to each other. He has been travelling throughout his inner spiritual world, bringing the visuals into the real world. He was born in Gunma prefecture where an animism culture has long remained from the ancient Japan. He grew up there in the quiet surroundings in which one can feel a presence of celestial beings and ghastly apparitions. Due to an injury to one of his legs, which later recovered completely, he spent most of his time painting his inner fantasies at home.

He attended dancing at an art school in Tokyo. Brimming vigor of the dance urged him to be a street dancer. Also its impromptu nature was added to his previous interest in Tai Chi, creating his original live painting style. Influenced by Katsushika Hokusai, the dynamic composition and bright coloring repeatedly appear in his work.

In 2011, he visited the area affected by the great earthquake and tsunami in eastern Japan to volunteer and paint the portraits of the people living in temporary housing. His activity gradually attracted other volunteers and residents, and together they set up an art support group called Flower Project. Their largest work was a dragon, which was 230 feet (70 m) in width painted on the walls of the container housings in Ishinomaki, Miyagi prefecture.

Afterwards, he had been to South Africa and Egypt for pursuing the possibility of spiritual expression that was presented at his solo exhibition at Consulate General of Japan in New York in 2014. He continues to challenge taking the contradictory elements into his artwork based on his endless curiosity.
